Do­ing!” “Don’t Stop What You Are

DREAM TEEN Magazine - - Teen Watch -

Ihad the ab­so­lute honor and priv­i­lege to in­ter­view Colby Christina, an ex­tra­or­di­nary 15-year-old pro­fes­sional ac­tress, model, singer, dancer, chore­og­ra­pher, ad­vo­cate and mo­ti­va­tional speaker. She is a young lady with phe­nom­e­nal tal­ents. Colby has been danc­ing since the age of 2, and she has been pur­su­ing her tal­ent ever since. This has al­ways been her true pas­sion. Colby’s in­spi­ra­tions are her fam­ily. Her fam­ily has al­ways been a part of the arts, which is why she grew up sur­rounded by great, tal­ented peo­ple. Colby al­ways saw her­self pur­su­ing the Arts. She has had the op­por­tu­nity to per­form at a num­ber of tremen­dous events such as: per­form­ing the Na­tional An­them, Lift Ev­ery Voice at the Li­ons Club, an ap­pear­ance in the Ebony Nutcracker, the youngest to have per­formed at the Dance African Cel­e­bra­tion and a per­for­mance at the 100 Black Men’s 38th Annual Gala. Colby has re­ceived many ci­ta­tions and amaz­ing awards, like the cer­tifi­cate of achieve­ment as Po­ten­tial Leader and so much more. She had some chal­lenges that were wait­ing for her though. As she was pre­par­ing for a per­for­mance, some­one took one of her bal­let slip­pers, but that didn’t stop her..., she per­formed bare­foot. There were times where she was al­ways in the spot­light, and peo­ple were jeal­ous of her, but Colby kept go­ing and ex­ceed­ing her po­ten­tial. I asked her, “What does reach for the stars mean?” she replied, “Don’t stop what you are do­ing!” Colby’s brother told her when she was younger “Stars are born, not made!” So she uses her God given gifts and tal­ents to the best of her abil­i­ties. Colby’s fu­ture goals are to re­lease her book later this year and con­tiune broad­cast­ing for her TV show, “Colby’s Cor­ner.” I en­joyed in­ter­view­ing Colby. She was very ar­tic­u­late, re­fresh­ing and she in­spired me per­son­ally. I look for­ward to see­ing this in­cred­i­ble ac­tress excel to reach her goals and even more great­ness. Her fu­ture is def­i­nitely bright. DT
